Although we are an island race, few are fortunate to live near enough to the sea to use the shoreline as a regular magical working area. And yet for the natural witch, born and bred by the sea, the beach and rocky shore are equally as magical as the inland woods and hills of more traditional approaches to witchcraft. The author takes us on a magical journey along the seashore and reveals how to work with the natural oceanic tides and energies. Learn how to harness the powers of the deep, and collect flotsam and jetsam for use as ritual tools. A book like no other.

For the witch whose career confines them to an urban environment, regular Craft practice may often seem like a futile gesture, especially if home is a small, gardenless-flat. Even the suburbs can be magically incapacitating, if there is constant noise from traffic and neighbours. People work long hour without having the opportunity to notice the subtle changing of the seasons. Weekends are a constant battle with family, domestic chores and socialising. It’s no wonder that the urban witch has little time left for magical and spiritual development.Traditional Witchcraft for Urban Living deals with the constant barrage of psychic problems that confront the urban witch on a daily basis. Based on the teachings of a traditional Craft background, the author successfully manages to blend the Old Ways with practical contemporary practice. This book is part of the Traditional Witchcraft Series. Other titles in the series are Traditional Witchcraft for the Seashore(Jan 2012), Traditional Witchcraft for Fields and Hedgerows (Mar 2012) and Traditional Witchcraft for the Woods and Forests (Mar 2012).

Traditional Witchcraft and the Path to the Mysteries, the sixth and last in the Traditional Witchcraft series, is a voyage of discovery and, as with every journey, it is essential that we understand where we are now and where we want to be. We need proper direction unlike that popular old Irish saying: “If I wanted to be going there, I wouldn’t be starting from here!” So let us make our preparations, put our house in order, and begin our journey of exploration and self-discovery. As with all stages of Life there are friends and acquaintances to consider: the essence of some we will take with us – the rest we will leave behind. But as the genii from Where the Rainbow Ends says: “Time is short, and we have far to travel.”

Both FieldCraft and its companion title, WoodCraft, assume a certain degree of magical understanding on the part of the reader with regard to routine divination, spell and Circle casting. For this reason, the text does not include the basic elements of rudimentary witchcraft that can be found in titles similar to Mean Streets Witchcraft and Sea Change. The books have been written in tandem to avoid any unnecessary repetition, and to provide cross-references where necessary.

In 1852 two sisters leave Scotland alone, amid fear of persecution as witches. They are only teenagers but they are leaving behind everything they know and heading for a new world so that they can start living without fear...One of the sisters, my great great great grandmother, Euphemia Grieve, left her homeland under unusual circumstances as a young girl. She came to Canada where she married William MacKenzie and they started a new life together. They were advised by family friend Emily Stowe (one of Canada's very first female doctors) to build a home in Muskoka Ontario, which they did. An octagonal home, built by 8 Scottish carpenters. A powerful, natural, magick Circle, my childhood home. They were practicing theosophists, whose mandate includes the re-awakening of humanities psychic gifts, and to investigate the unexplained laws of Nature and the powers latent in humankind. Some consider the modern day New Age movement to be based on theosophical teachings, and even in the new world one couldn't openly declare oneself a witch in 1886. In Muskoka they planted a huge perennial garden full of witches herbs and flowers which still existed when I was growing up there, steeped in tradition. I am a 6th generation practicing witch among the matrimonial line in my family. Initiated by family and raised in traditional witchcraft. Although I was baptized as a Christian for propriety's sake (most of the men in the family are not initiated or even aware of the Craft, although this is changing) I have always been aware of the truth and intrinsic rightness of the Craft of the Wise. I was always allowed and encouraged to explore other religions and make my own choice but there has only ever been one way for me. I consider myself very well-read on the subject, and well-versed in the different traditions that make up modern day Wicca and neo-paganism, and as a teenager I attended Wiccan church in Toronto. Today, as all the woman in my family I am a fully initiated third degree solitary practitioner.And in this book I am including 200 years of real accumulated knowledge to enable others to fulfill their lives.

Regional traditional witchcraft is an animistic form of witchcraft that moves away from the religious harvest festivals and fertility-minded practices associated with the more common Wiccan form of witchcraft. Very few of us in this age are farmers or dependent upon crops and harvests. Regional traditional witchcraft teaches people to find their craft in their own backyards, in the uncultivated land or urban cityscape alike, and in their ancestors rather than in ancient foreign deities or in a neopagan-styled religious form of witchcraft. It's not about where you're from but where you are. The material is adaptable to any region in which the practitioner lives. Although the lack of deity worship and holy days is a significant part of the authors' nonreligious approach, this book presents a complete system of practice utilizing ritual, chant, trance, the six paths of witchcraft as defined and explained by the text, and the practices associated with traditional witchcraft.

A Down-to-Earth Guide to Traditional Wicca While there are many powerful variations of contemporary Witchcraft, traditional Wicca offers unique experiences for those who seek it out. This book explores structured, coven-based styles of Wicca, in which the practitioners typically trace initiatory lineages back to Wicca's early founders. Discussing covens, initiations, lineages, practices, ethics, and more, Traditional Wicca shares tips and ideas on how to get the most from this profound approach to Witchcraft. Discover how to recognize healthy, reputable covens. Learn how to navigate the process of asking for training and succeeding in an outer court. Explore the spiritual strength of lineages, hierarchies, and initiation. This book also includes contributions from several practitioners, providing valuable first-person perspectives on what it's like to be on the traditional Wiccan path. Praise : "Like the bristles of a besom, Thorn Mooney's Traditional Wicca sweeps through the subject of Witchcraft removing the dust and dirt of ignorance and prejudice to reveal the true heart of Wicca. Thorn writes with obvious sincerity, with feeling, and from experience. Her book covers everything from defining Witchcraft, through the workings of a coven, to actual initiation and beyond. She warns that Wicca is not for everyone and—I am personally delighted to see—includes a chapter on recognizing 'Red Flags' when first contacting others...especially those who might claim to be more than they actually are. This book is the quintessential guide for the true, sincere seeker."—Raymond Buckland, author of Buckland's Complete Book of Witchcraft "Traditional Wicca is a unique and important book. It's amazing to me that in over 70 years of publishing on the subject of Wicca, nothing like this book has ever been written! I'm kind of jealous I didn't think to write it myself. The chapter on initiation is, by itself, worth the cover price. If you want to understand what people mean by 'traditional Wicca,' whether or not you're seeking it, this is the one book you must read."—Deborah Lipp, Wiccan high priestess and author of Merry Meet Again "Traditional Wicca is a topic that few actually understand despite its long and distinguished history. With passion and skill, Thorn delivers a book that many familiar with Wicca will wish they had had when they were studying it, and those who find themselves on the path for the first time will rejoice at having found. Whether you intend to seek initiation or not, this book is full of valuable gems that will enhance any practice at any level. Traditional Wicca is an all-inclusive tour through the history, practices, and lore of traditional Wicca that weaves voices from all over the tradition and challenges everything you think you know about it."—Devin Hunter, author of The Witch's Book of Power "A masterful gem of insight and wisdom,Traditional Wicca reveals the time-honored practices of initiatory Wicca, thought all but lost by many, but hidden like so many occult secrets in plain sight. Drawing a clear and respectful distinction between eclectic Wicca and its older more traditional sibling, Thorn Mooney takes us on a personal journey exploring the powers and the pitfalls of the initiatory inner court, revealing the persistence of a thriving and dynamic Craft that is at once orthopraxic and changing, traditional and experimental. With practical advice for the seeker, peppered with personal anecdotes from several practitioners and initiates alike, this book is a much-needed map...Highly recommended."—Storm Faerywolf, author of Betwixt and Between

The animal is conceived as a tutelary spirit that helps or protects individuals, lineages, and nations. Dogs and man became companions a long time ago, and the dog adopted as a power animal represents speed, agility, courage, protection, justice, nobility and loyalty.
